Table 5 Summary of findings related to ultraviolet radiation (uvr) variations

From: Variation in ultraviolet radiation and diabetes: evidence of an epigenetic effect that modulates diabetics’ lifespan

Lower sensitivity (smaller MAX - MIN) Higher sensitivity (larger MAX - MIN)
Diabetics Non-diabetics
More genetic More epigenetic
White race Ethnic minority races
Ethnic minority diabetics Ethnic minority non-diabetics
Female ethnic minority diabetics Male ethnic minority diabetics
Diabetic females less affected by seasonal changes in UVR, slightly benefit at MAX Diabetic males benefit by decreasing seasonal UVR at conception, and at MIN
